Mitchell is the facility dog assigned to the Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center.
Mitchell was provided to us byDuo. TheDuo Court Room Dog Programplaces dogs with therapists and adults as part of a forensic interview process when working with children who may have been mentally, physically, or sexually abused.
When not in an interview, Mitchell provides comfort and support to our guests who are here at the Center. His role is to alleviate anxiety and provide a calming force. If necessary and when appropriate, Mitchell can accompany the victim to court if testimony is needed. More simply put, Mitchell helps bring a comfort to kids in need.
Mitchell was specifically trained and certified byDuoand has been a member of our team since 2015.
Mitchell serves a very special role here at the Center in addition to helping us create awareness on child abuse.
